IE7 vs. FireFox

Ok, it’s on.

For the past 2 or 3 weeks, FireFox has decided to start randomly locking up on both my desktop PC and my laptop. It sometimes takes 3 or 4 tries to get it up and running from a closed slate.  I'm sure it's just some unhappy extension breaking it, but it's given me a reason to try something new.

So, I've decided to try the latest beta (beta 3 for those of you keeping score at home) of IE7 for a while to see how it fares against what I've come to know and love about FireFox.

After the IE7 base install, the stupid thing wouldn't even even allow me to navigate to a page. After clicking the new "Reset..." button from the Internet Options control panel, things started up and are now running.

I tried the original IE7 beta and liked it. Microsoft finally decided to catch up to the rest of the world. But I'm very curious to see if it will get me to switch back permanently.

Here goes nothing...
